PCGM 29 at University of California at Davis: registration open

Registration is now open for PCGM 29, the 29th Pacific Coast Gravity Meeting, which will take place March 29-30 at the University of California at Davis. The conference website, http://pcgm29.ucdavis.edu, includes a registration form, as well as information about food, transportation, and lodging.

The Pacific Coast Gravity Meetings are designed to be very open and informal, aimed at fostering communication among gravitational physicists with varied backgrounds. Students and postdocs are especially encouraged to give short, introductory talks about their research. A prize, sponsored by the APS Topical Group on Gravity, will be awarded for the best talk given by a student at the meeting.

If you are interested in attending — and especially if you would like to give a talk — please register, to allow us to estimate the attendance and start planning the program.

PCGM 29 at the University of California at Davis (1st circ.)

The 29th Pacific Coast Gravity Meeting will be held at the University of California at Davis on March 29-30, 2013. The conference will cover all aspects of classical and quantum gravity, both theory and experiment. In keeping with tradition, the style will be very open and informal, with the aim of fostering communication among gravitational physicists with varied backgrounds. Students and postdocs are especially encouraged to give short, introductory talks about their research. As a regional meeting, the PCGM normally draws most of its participants from western North America, but all are welcome.

There will no registration fee, and no financial support for travel. A prize, sponsored by the APS Topical Group on Gravity, will be awarded for the best talk given by a student at the meeting.

Davis is located in California’s Central Valley, about 15 miles west of Sacramento. The nearest airport is Sacramento International; a variety of shuttle services are available between the airport and Davis. We will reserve a block of nearby hotel rooms for participants.

A second announcement, with website containing more information on registration, travel, and lodging, will appear in mid-January.
